Our Lord came upon earth in 
all humility and purity. He 
could have been born in a palace 
instead of a stable, but He pre,- 
ferred the stable among the 
beasts, the manger for his couch, 
straw for his pillow, all for our 
example, to teach us true humi- 
lity; but, whilst He deigned to 
place Himself in such extreme 
poverty, He did not command us 
to let Him remain in that humble 
state. Many men of dstinction, 
even some of our Presidents, 
were born in quite plain and 
humble circumstances, hut they 
did not close their lives in that 
way. They were honored in all 
places and at all times. They 
were placed in the White House 
in Washington, in style and with 
all comforts, as a ruler of the 
United States. We should then 
honor our Lord the Ruler and 
Creator of the entire world, by 
making our churches a becoming 
abode for Him to dwell in, by 
adorning it with all possible 
grandeur. He has made all 
things for our pleasure, comfort 
and admiration. Then most 
cheerfully should we share with 
Him. O, cOuld the Ciborium in 
the tabernacle in which His sa- 
cred body rests form the rising 
to the setting of the sun, be one 
made of precious jewels. Noth- 
ing is too grand or costly for our 
Lord. He deserves all this and 
hearts that truly love Him long 
to lavish upon Him in this man- 
ner. Many persons seem to take 
no pleasure in making such 
strong demonstration of love and 
honor due their God; they think 
a plain dingy looking church 
will answer all purposes to pray 
in; they all say one does not ask 
for grandeur. It is true He does 
not, He leaves all that to our love 
and generosity. As He has made 
all things, so He has in His pow- 
er to make His d welling place 

here on all grandeur, all magni- 
ficence. But He leaves that for 
us His children to do to prove 
our love and gratitude for all His 
goodness to us. One glance from 
His eyes takes in all He has cre- 
ated, all the beauties of nature. 
A simple little fragrant flower 
culled and placed at His sacred 
feet as a mark of our love and 
appreciation, are very pleasing 
to Him. Their beauty and fra- 
grance are, as it were, prayers 
of love ascending up to Him. In 
heaven now, He sits upon His 
throne bestowing upon us many 
blessings and waiting for our 
acts of love and gratitude in re- 


An immigration official during 
the course of a lecture one even- 
ing was exhibiting types of ar- 
rivals at the Ellis Island immi- 
gration station in New York. 
He told of a fellow on a ship one 
day whose face and make-up 
were such that the inspection of- 
ficers could not for the life of 
them determine the particular 
country whence he came. He 
was accotsed in turn by linguists 
in Italian, German, Slovak, Scan- 
dinavian, Greek and Finnish. 
Not less than twenty-two differ- 
ent tongues and dialects were 
tried on the new arrival, who 
looked as though he might have 
hailed from any one of the coun- 
tries where those languages are 
spoken; but he didn't saya word, 
just stood and stared at the offi- 
cers who were interrogating him. 

Finally he turned to them and 
exclaimed: "For the love of 
heaven, is there anybody around 
here who can speak English? ' 

We once heard Judge A. M. 
Keiley narrate a somewhat simi- 
lar experience he had while on 
the bench in the International 
Court at Cairo. After a witness 
whose nationality was a puzzle 
had been addressed in French, 
Spanish, German, Portuguese, 
Italian and Arabic, and failed to 
make any response except to in- 
dicate by shaking his head that 
he did not understand. Judge 
Keiley turned to a brother Judge, 
and remarked sotto voice: ''I 
wonder what language the idiot 
speaks anyhow?" 

"The same as yourself, yer 
honor," came from the witness 
in the broadest Tipperary brogue. 


A doctor who thinks that all 
the ills of the human race can be 
traced to the drinking of coffee 
and tea entered a restaurant re- 
cently and seated himself oppo- 
site an Irishman who was busy- 
ing himself trying to dispose of a 
steaming cup of coffee. 

' 'How often do you use coffee?" 
queried the doctor. 

"I drink it morning, noon and 
night, sir." 

"Don't you experience a slight 
dizziness of the brain on retiring 
at night?" 

"Indeed I do, sir, very fre- 

"You have a sharp pain 
through the temples and in and 
around the eyes?" 

"Right you are," replied the 
the Irishman. 

"You are possessed with a 
drowsiness when you awake in 
the morning, and your head of- 
ten aches and feels very heavy." 

"Right again," answered the 
Irishman, still sipping his coffee. 

"Well then," exclaimed the 
doctor, sitting erect in the chair, 
"aren't you convinced, that the 
coffee is the cause?" 

"Is that so?" said the Irish- 
man in astonishment. Faith, I 
always thought it was the whis- 


"Talk about having to pay 
every time you turn around," 
said Congressman Seed graft as 
he twisted his unlighted cigar be- 
tween his teeth and elevated his 
feet upon a brass cuspidor in one 
of the lobbies at the capitol. "I 
struck the worst case of it in my 
last campaign that I ever found. 
I was making a long journey 
across the country where there 
were practically no members of 
my party living. I had to put 
up at a small hotel run by a man 
who was red-hot for my oppo- 

His accommodations were fair- 
ly good except that my room was 
near a stable and the cow dis- 
turbed me for a while; but when 
I complained the landlord soon 
silenced her. The next morning 
when he presented my bill, I 
found an extra 50 cents charged 
for hay beside what my horse 

"Here,' I said. 'What does 
this 50 cents worth of hay mean? 
I did not order it." 

"No!' the old fellow replied, 
'but you said the noise from the 
stable kept you awake and I had 
to give hay to the cow to keep 
her quiet."
